ABOUT

**We work with all Insurance plans so please anticipate hearing from our insurance department PRIOR to your appointment IF you have any financial responsibility**

We specialize in the provision of comprehensive physical therapy to individuals following joint replacement, arthroscopic and reconstructive surgeries, and spine surgeries as well as non-surgical orthopedic, sports, and spinal-related injuries.

We strive to offer an exemplary model of patient care in a professional and caring environment. Our skilled staff of highly trained physical therapists have extensive experience in treating advanced orthopedic injuries, and are referred by many of the area's and nation's top physicians.

Our ability to provide focused expertise in orthopedics is strongly supported by our team-centric environment and we view our team as equals working together towards one common goal: the patient’s rehabilitation and recovery. Our philosophy is to roll out the ‘red carpet’ for every patient who comes in contact with our company, whether it be on a phone call or when stepping through our front door.

Our Physical Therapists are held to a high standard and are selected not solely on resume, but on the clinical and interpersonal skills they possess. Prospective patients can be assured of consistency and meticulous attention to their needs. We have a very low patient per-hour ratio, allowing our Physical Therapists to spend ample time with each patient to achieve optimal results. Our goal is to establish relationships for a lifetime, but not treat patients for a lifetime. We take pride in being a low-volume practice, which is how we gained our reputation for providing the best care in Bergen County.

Our foundation for success has been built upon providing exceptional quality care, while at the same time maintaining an unsurpassed level of professional standards.

PHYSICAL THERAPIST BIO

Katie grew up in Upper Saddle River, NJ with her parents, two older brothers, and twin sister Erin. She completed her undergraduate studies at Colgate University, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a degree in biology, and went on to earn her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Delaware. Katie spent the majority of her youth playing competitive sports, including soccer, volleyball, basketball, and softball. She captained the varsity softball and volleyball teams in high school at Northern Highlands and played club volleyball at Colgate University. While earning her doctorate at Delaware, Katie participated in nearly every intramural sport, winning championships in softball, flag football, volleyball, and soccer. Katie developed an interest in physical therapy after experiencing multiple sports-related injuries while growing up. In rehabbing her own sports injuries, she got to see how invaluable it was to have a physical therapist who was invested in her recovery and cared about getting her back to her active lifestyle as quickly and as safely as possible. Since becoming a physical therapist, she has experienced first-hand how rewarding and fulfilling this career can be and couldn’t be happier with her decision to pursue it. Katie has a particular interest in treating sports-related injuries in patients of all ages due to her own personal experiences in the past. She has also developed an interest in treating the low back and is pursuing further specialization through continuing education classes and specialty certification. Katie loves the continuous learning aspect of the physical therapy profession and is always seeking out the latest research for new techniques and treatment ideas to help improve her patients’ outcomes and recoveries. In her free time, Katie enjoys playing competitive volleyball, softball, and soccer all around North Jersey. She also enjoys playing bar trivia and has been using it as practice to one day pass the Jeopardy online exam. Katie has recently developed an interest in recreational running and is currently training for a half marathon in the spring. She enjoys watching reality TV, The Food Network, Jeopardy, and pretty much any Netflix original series. Katie is an avid Yankees fan and loves attending games with her twin sister and her dad.

Bryan Del Rio

PT, MSPT

imgBryan Del Rio
PHYSICAL THERAPIST BIO

Bryan Del Rio was raised in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. He attended Springfield College, where he earned a Master Degree in Physical Therapy in just five years as part of an accelerated program. His interest and participation in sports of all types, along with his love and predilection for science and medicine, led him to pursue his chosen career path. Growing up, Bryan played a lot of soccer and baseball, as well as being a member of the football and swim teams in high school. In college, he discovered rugby, and balanced his studies with being a part of Springfield College’s team. Since then, Bryan has played in adult baseball and softball leagues, plenty of pick-up basketball, taken a variety of high-intensity interval training classes, and regularly attends spin classes. With a wife that is a Pilates instructor, he has also developed a first-hand appreciation of how challenging those classes can be. In 2008 he was introduced to the sport of triathlon and has never looked back. Bryan has completed 2 Ironman events in Sonoma, CA and Lake Placid, NY and he is registered for his next Ironman in Mont Tremblant, Canada in 2018. Bryan fills in his race calendar with other shorter endurance events and can be seen around Bergen County, Harriman State Park, or Lifetime Fitness swimming, cycling, and running throughout the training season. When not training, he and his wife enjoy spending time in the kitchen cooking and learning about wine. They keep busy finding new, and revisiting familiar, favorite culinary experiences locally and in New York City. An annual trip earmarked to visit family on Bonaire gives them an opportunity to take a break from their busy lifestyles and recharge their batteries each year. Bryan has particular interests in treating injuries and post-operative care of shoulder and knee conditions. His familiarity and personal experiences with many sports and activities allows him to design more than just rudimentary generic routines, and instead considers the specific requirements for each individual patient’s goals and lifestyle. His ability and willingness to carefully explain each step of the rehab process makes it easy for patients to understand and actively participate in their recovery. For these reasons and more, Bryan continues to earn requests from returning patients and personal referrals from past patients ever since he joined Excel in 2002.
